DINNA CARES VICTORY » Comes from Behind to Defeat Some Crack Sprinters. i ♦ ■ Comixa Wins, But Body Guard Keeps Her Busy at the End — Lollipops Steeplechase. * ■ HAVRE DE GRACE, Md., April 26.— Dinna Care, the six-year-old son of Superman and Dinawick that races for Samuel D. Riddles Glen Riddle Farm is back to the races a good horse. Cwyn Tompkins insisted last fall that he was a high-class horse and ha promises to be better this year. He took the best offering at Havre de Grace this afternoon when he won the Pagebrook Purse, at three-quarters, and his was the mest sensational victory of the day, for lie had to close an immense gap to catch Lion dOr and Broomster. There was another big crowd on hand and the card of races was a thoroughly interesting one. with two sprints as the chief attractions, although the race for two-year-olds brought some truly fast fillies to the post. One of the best eventually probably wiil prove to be Willis Sharpe Kilmers Sunny Sal. This filly is a daughter of Sun Briar and Salvolatile and a half sister to Sallys Alley. Although Sunny Sal was beaten sho showed enough in her race to warrant the suggestion that she will probably take a high place among the fillies of the year. PACE TOO HOT FOR WELL1INDER. Eight went to the post in the Pagebrook Purse and while Dexterous. Well finder and Lion dOr were off lying Dinna Care began slowly and before he was under way his case seemed hopeless. Wellfinder was first of the leaders to find the pace too hot. As he dropped back Broomster took a better position next to the inner rail and McAtee was reserving him behind those in front of him. Then Claver moved up with a rush on the outside with Lion dOr and at the same time McAtee moved up with Broomster and matched the Ross sprinter with speed. Claver was in a big hu.ry and when Broomster stuck to the rail, while Lion dOr came a bit wide, it seemed the Whitney gelding might save the day. But In the meantime Kummer had gradually worked his way up on the outside with Dinna Care and stride by stride he drew up on the flying leaders until near the end he passed them both and won going away. From where Dinna Care left the barrier his was a wonderfully good performance and he seems sure to go on to better things. A speedy band of three-year-olds met at three-quarters in the Albemarle Purse, that was the fourth offering, and Edward U. McLeans Comixa in a gamely run race won from the Idle Hour Farms Bodyguard, while New Hampshire saved third place. Mark Twain and Comixa beat the others away and set the pace down the backstretch, while Body Guard was not far away and the others in a fairly close bunch, with New Hampshire racing next to the rail and in a good position. Leaving the backstretch Mark Twain drew away slightly from the Melean filly and Body Guard held his position and was going well and saving ground. New Hampshire had improved his position and was racing fast. On the turn for home Mark Twain gave way. Comixa came fast to take command, but Body Cuard was still racing along ia his rail position and holding his place. Claver had to come to the outside of the leaders with New Hampshire anil rode him hard through the last eighth, but the filly hung on resolutely to win by a neck, and Body Guard saved second place, with New Hampshire finishing third and only a head back. REMNANT WINS WIRE Fourteen went to the post in the opener, a half-mile dash for two-year-old fillies, and L. S. Thompsons Remnant hung up her second victory by a nose better than Helen Cook. Sunny Sal was a fast going third and Bamra, racing for James Arthur, was fourth. Helen Cook was alert at the post and quickly raced into a good lead with the; others in a rather clos-e bunch. Remnant and Sunny Sal racing some lengths back of the leader. Helen Cook swung into the stretch still well in the lead, but in the last eighth she tired and McAtee. bringing Remnant up with a well-timed rush, outlinished her by a nose. Sunny Sal was probably best for in the Btretch when Carroll ealled on her she raced into a pocket and had to he pulled up and taken around three horses to find clear sailing. The Harford Steeplechase brought a good contest and resulted in a fighting finish between two horses from the Matt Smart string when Lollipop and Patissiere hooked up at the last jump and battled to the end, where Lollipop earned the decision by a narrow margin. The Swell finished third.
